Xīn Nián Kuài Lè!! Part 2

On Saturday John, Abbey, Elijah and Abbey attended The Chinese American Society sponsored a Chinese New Year celebration.

In their traditional suits, ready to go!
When we got there, we immediately met up with our "Gang".

Elijah, Corrie, Darcy, Abbey, Daniel, Caleb, Kylie and Lottie

There was constant stream of performances on the main stage.

The Fan Dance
Our kids loved the dragon dance.

With the non-dancing Dragon
They worked on their chopstick skills.

They got to keep the candy they picked up...motivation!
They played Chinese games.

I'm not sure what this is called, but it looked like a type of yo-yo.

After the festival, we went out to eat Chinese with the M family! A great ending to a great day!

Apparently, Elijah had a big day!

He crashed before we could get him bathed and in bed.
